Elderly Man:  Protect seniors physically, emotionally, financially. 

San Francisco County, California Resources

Adult Protective Services:

Anyone can make a confidential report if they know or suspect that an elderly person or adult with a disability who lives in San Francisco is being abused. The 24-hour hotline is staffed by social workers who respond to calls and ask a series of questions to determine if an emergency response is required. If necessary, an Emergency Response Worker will be dispatched to make a home visit to investigate the report and to determine what services, if any, are needed.

Adult Protective Services (APS) investigates possible abuse or neglect of elders and adults with a disability and dependent adults. The abuse may be

  • physical,
  • emotional,
  • financial,
  • neglect by others,
  • or self-neglect

Any services provided by Adult Protective Services are voluntary; the adult who is offered the services must consent to receive them.

Adult Protective Services (APS) also protects and provides services to dependent adults and seniors who are victims of abuse, neglect, and exploitation.

In-Home Supportive Services (IHSS):

The In-Home Supportive Services Program will pay for services that you are unable to do for yourself, so that you can remain safely in your own home. To be eligible, an adult must also be over 65 years of age, or disabled, or blind, and meet income and resource limits for the program. Disabled children may also be eligible for IHSS. In-Home Supportive Services (IHSS) is considered an alternative to out-of-home care, such as nursing home or board and care facilities. The types of services that are available through IHSS include housecleaning, meal preparation, laundry, grocery shopping, personal care services (such as bowel and bladder care, bathing, grooming, and paramedical services), accompaniment to medical appointments, and protective supervision for the mentally impaired. Eligibility for this program is determined through assessment by a social worker.
